In brief: ?

I am assuming that when you say reasons you mean causes.
Cold sores are caused by certain strains of the herpes simplex virus (hsv). You get the first episode of herpes infection from another person who has an active lesion. Shared eating utensils, razors and towels, as well as kissing, may spread hsv-1. Oral sex can spread hsv-1 to the genitals and hsv-2 to the lips. Hope this helped :].
